I wanted to let you know about a free, new feature that will be added to your current plan:
Instant Email Alerts: In addition to the 24-hour alarm monitoring service you're subscribed to and in an ongoing effort to increase your Delight, we'll be sending notifications of all alarm system events to you via e-mail.
Here's the long story, short:
· We have found that our customers prefer to receive an e-mail rather than a phone call when it comes to non-emergency events such as low batteries and power failure notifications (especially when they occur in the middle of the night!).
· For certain low priority signals (low battery, sensor malfunctions, etc.) this e-mailed alert is the only notification you will receive for this signal.
· These e-mail alerts are in addition to any notifications that you may have set up with your interactive services (if you have that feature on your monitoring service plan).
When does this new service go into effect?
This service will be fully implemented on August 20, 2013.
What Can You Expect?
Burglary, Intrusion, Fire, Smoke, Carbon Monoxide, etc.
· Phone Call (no change here) – you will still get the same fast phone calls from our 24/7 monitoring center, unless your system is properly disarmed within the legally required 1-2 minutes of an event and
· E-mail AlertsNEW! sent to your monitoring email address on file
Low Battery, Power Failure, Sensor Malfunction, etc.
· E-mail AlertsNEW! sent to your monitoring email address on file.
· This e-mail address may be different than other emails you have on file with us and can be easily updated or turned off by logging into the Customer Center.
How to make sure you are getting our messages.
Just add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book so that you receive these important messages — it's extremely important to never mark these messages as spam. If you want to turn them off, simply visit the LiveWatch Customer Center where you can opt out of this e-mail notification service.
Why are we doing this?
Every alarm system will, at some time or another, have a low battery and send a low battery signal to our Central Monitoring Station. In the past, we would call to let you know of the low battery condition, regardless of the time (sometimes at 2 AM on the weekend). Since we are committed to your Delight, we will now e-mail this information to you so as not to disrupt your sleep and so that you can keep this record in your files as a helpful reminder.
That sounds great…now what?
There's nothing further needed from you at this time. If you wish to be called on Non-Emergency alerts see below. If you still have questions, visit our Help Center where you can find information, chat with reps during business hours or submit a help ticket, which is available online 24/7 for your convenience. You'll find the solutions you need in How-To Videos, Articles, and User Manuals specific to your system and event.
I don’t care about sleep; I would like a call!
We can certainly call you on any non-emergency low priority signal. This is not the recommended best practice, but we are eager to Delight you. To opt out of the e-mail services and maintain the phone calls for non-emergency signals, visit the Livewatch Customer Center and edit your preferences concerning e-mail notifications.
Thank you, enjoy the experience, and let us know if you have any questions!
